I generally purchase very few poetry books, but I heard about Aimee Herman and was intrigued by the cover photo so I placed an order for her new book, "to go without blinking". I am so glad that I did. The collection of separate and yet somehow connected pieces made me think, and isn't that what a good writer is supposed to do?

She writes about the world and events and people around her and makes you wonder if any or all of it is autobiographical. Words seem to take on all new and special meaning in her hands. I found myself re-reading portions, almost mesmerized by how she gently directs the reader along new uncharted waves. Her work is either the result of a thousand years of living or the embodiment of numerous existences.

Fortunately, I heard Aimee Herman perform several years ago in a coffee shop in Connecticut. As I remember it, there were a number of performers before her competing with a room full of casual conversation from around the café and then Aimee stepped up to the microphone. Before long every eye was on her. Her gentle and easy to listen to voice accentuated the unique style of her written words. The thought that quickly came to mind that evening was that although she uses the very same words that are available to each of us, in her gentle crafting of them, they take on new meanings and values.

I've read her work in a few collections since and eagerly purchased her new book as soon as I found out about it. She continues to grow as a writer. Although the individual pieces within the book can stand alone, when read as a collection, they weave a tapestry of connected thoughts, musings and awakenings. One can find hope and appreciation for what really matters through Aimee's writings. Some pieces are light and others quite dark and thought provoking, she does not disappoint.

Format: Paperback
Crammed with lines that feel to me like happy surprises, like "A foraging fork thinks of spoons," and lines that make me laugh, such as "Cause of death: deodorant application and razor burn." I think Herman sums up her own style exactly when she writes: When you snap a pencil in half/you still have a pencil in one hand/and something to shank someone's ribs with in another/and that's how you write a poem/lead in one fist/blood in the other.

This collection of poems changed me - I felt physically and mentally different after finishing it. Herman's words eviscerate language - what I thought language to be. All that is left is raw nerves, real pain, emotions, stunning images. My words here cannot adequately describe how much I enjoyed this book. You should definitely read it yourself.
